Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

C

I have been using C professionally since 1992. During that time I have used C to implement:

1. Financial trading platforms

2. Web applications

3. Image processing toolkits

4. Text processing software

(I also have an extensive background in C++ with even more projects)

I can help you understand:

1. How to get a C compiler installed on your machine
2. Basic usage: syntax, functions, variables, control structures
3. The standard library: strings, files, math
4. Memory management: allocation, pointers, datastructures, pointers-to-functions
5. Advanced topics based on your interests

C#

I have been a professional software developer since 1992 and using C# continuously since 2006.

I can help with

* Basic C# concepts: variables, properties, events, methods, classes, control structures
* Advanced C#: lambdas, Linq, generics
* Object-oriented concepts: inheritance, polymorphism, interfaces
* Winform and Webform (ASP.NET) applications
* .NET concepts

C++

I have been using C++ professionally since 1995. During that time I have used C++ to implement:

1. Cross-platform, multi-threaded network servers

2. Windows desktop software

3. Web-services

4. Image processing tool-kits

5. Database connectors

I can help you understand

1. How to get a C++ installed on your machine
2. Basic usage: syntax, functions, variables, control structures
3. The standard library: data structures, iterators, algorithms
4. Object-oriented features: classes, inheritance, polymorphism

Career Development

I have been a programmer and technical manager and executive since 1992, and I can help software engineers with their career development.

I have expertise in

1. Technical resume and cover-letter writing
2. Technical interviewing
3. Business networking
4. Career management in either architect, technical manager or product manager tracks.
5. Programmer portfolio creation

In addition I have a large network of technical contacts in Massachusetts, New York, California, and Seattle and I can help you make contacts (contingent on you being a good match).

Computer Programming

I have been a professional programmer since 1992 (and as a student since 1983), with experience in C/C++, Perl, Java, iOS Development in Objective-C/Swift, HTML/CSS/JavaScript, .NET (C# and VB.NET) and many others. I wrote a book, published by Manning, called "Hello! iOS Development" which was aimed at beginner programmers.

I have a BS in Engineering from The Cooper Union (1992) where I received a full four-year scholarship.

Computer Science

I have a computer science related degree from The Cooper Union (1992) and have been applying CS concepts for over 20 years. This includes: 1. 4 years in financial technology using simulation methods like Monte Carlo and decision trees; 2. 6 years building internet application servers and analytical engines (making use of concepts from Graph Theory); and 3. 7 years in an image-processing company that used Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and AI techniques.
